Clojure is a fairly new programming language for the JVM (and CLR) focusing on expressive power, functional programming and concurrency, while at the same time remaining practical in terms of performance, productivity and interoperability with the host platform.
This talk starts out discussing some concurrency problems that occur in Java programs and the possible solutions. We then proceed to give an introduction to Clojure focusing on the most important concepts more than on syntax. Finally, we see how some of those Java concurrency problems are handled in Clojure.
